    I hate this Freeplay model that gives you the most basic access to the game, then hides the true cost using micro-transactions. Didn't Bit do something a while ago regarding the total cost of micro-transactions if you were to buy everything that was available? I seem to remember the total cost of ownership for some games ran into the £hundreds?

    If the game is good, whats wrong with charging £30 - £35 for it?

    Edit: Found it.... http://www.bit-tech.net/gaming/pc/2011/09/19/the-microtransaction-investigation/1

    It look's like it will be a good game but I have to agree with B1gbud the micro transaction system seems abit stupid but who knows it might be limited to only a few item's costing very little.

    I thought the same about the free to play model when I heared about it in the forum the other day. I personally would much prefer to just buy a copy.

    Game play videos look sweet!!

    So long as a player can still earn the same paid for content over time through experience/kills without having to purchase, I wouldn't mind. I guess we will have to wait for more details on it for now.

    I guess they don't have enough confidence in the quality of the game so it's "free to play"

    I don't know anything about the quality, but the gameplay looks very bad to me.
